We're your local experts in the ACT

The Australian Capital Territory is the most densely populated of Australia's states and territories, with 400,000 of the state's population residing in Canberra, the only city. Because most of the population work either directly or indirectly for the government, the ACT's property market is closely linked to the staffing policies of the elected government.

Canberra is becoming a popular focus for both investors and owner occupiers as unlike most other Australian states, the median property price for houses and units is growing at a steady rate. Canberra is expected to record a 16% increase between now and 2020, the highest price growth of all capital cities.

ACT agent commission rates vary significantly depending on where you're selling. There are more than 250 real estate agents across the ACT and the average commission charged is 2.78%. When searching for an agent, price should only be one of the factors that you consider, not the only factor.

Desirable qualities your real estate agents should have:

1. Successful sales

a good agent will have a number of successful property sales to their name in your local area over the last 12 months.

2. Local knowledge

they will know the ins and outs of the local property market - including average prices, current demand, buyer demographics and how long properties take to sell.

3. Familiarity with your property

the agent should have sold similar properties to yours, so they know how to successfully sell your asset to the right market.

4. Happy customers

they will have testimonials from satisfied clients who are happy to recommend them to others.

5. Solid support

they will belong to a reputable estate agency with plenty of resources and a good local track record. If the agency can't offer you what you want, it's cause enough to keep searching.

6. Marketing plan

they will have a sound marketing strategy that's in tune with your own way of thinking.

7. Charisma

the agent should be confident in their own abilities. Such confidence rubs off on potential buyers, leaving a long-lasting and positive impression.

You can compare most of these qualities side by side using LocalAgentFinder - including fees charged, performance data, customer reviews and marketing strategies. Just put in your property details, requirements, and preferences. Then, click on your location in the ACT and our search engine will do the rest.
